Detonation under 2000 RPM w/ bigger tires?

I added 315/70/17 Duratracs about 2 weeks ago, and I'm noticing something that never happened before... There is a brief moment of detonation around 1700 RPM.

This is normally right after shifting and getting back on the gas a little... 2013 6 speed with 3.73's. I guess I could try mid grade gas at next fillup, but curious if I'm the only one having this issue.

Nothing, eh?

I guess I'll try getting gas somewhere else next time in hopes it's a fluke.

Had something similar happen to a car I owned once. Ran the tank dry, filled up at chevron and it never happened again. Probably bad gas.
